For once, we might be going to where the weather is the worst. What does San Angelo have in store for us?
At 1151, CT, San Angelo was reporting a temperature of 38 degrees with overcast skies. Scattered showers were generally found north of San Angelo, but there was a cell getting ready to work its way through town. A strong jet had dived down into northwestern Mexico, with a long plume of heavy rain running from Texas all the way to the Upper Ohio Valley, while there was a ripple of a wave in the strong base of the trough, creating some amplification and introducing cooler air over the Southern Plains.
Fortunately, sub freezing temperatures don’t look to be as significant a threat while it’s precipitating through the day today. That said, there will be threat for freezing rain as nearby as Abilene through the afternoon today, and in San Angelo, much of the day will be marked by rainfall. The impulse along the jet will shift to the northeast through the day tomorrow, which will carry much of the moisture into the Mississippi Valley, but it won’t do too much for temperatures. Surface low pressure will organized in the central Plains as the impulse shifts away, which means another slug of heavy rain before things wrap up, followed by drier and warmer conditions on Monday.

So obviously, it looks a little nasty. I’m going cooler than our rivals, because I see all the potential for cold advection coming from the north. Here is the radar, showing all those spotty showers
